GAO Report on Excessive Community Preparationgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
A recently completed GAO study, of excessive community preparations for Y2K, has determined that 83.7 % of such excessive activity was caused by one "CPR". Although unknown to the general public, "CPR" was very well known to the Y2K community, having posted over fifteen thousand messages to various Y2K bulletin boards and forums.
Typical of city managers' reactions, Ether Politesse summed matters up by stating "when a flaming asshole like CPR downplays the Y2K threat, you figure there is really something to it."

You're so full of shit. Her name was ESTHER, not "Ether."

Laughed my ass off an entire weekend after inhaling ether.

I'd rather inhale Esther.

Dear Mr. Nemesis,
You have gotten this teeny-bopper very upset, with your disrespectful comment about that Esther lady. What's wrong with you, do you have some kind of thing about women in politics? Your comment was just grody to the max!
